Fighting Your Demons: The Story of Doubt and Delay

Fighting Your Demons: The Story of Doubt and Delay Do you know what stops you from achieving your dreams? Millions of negative thoughts start sprouting up in our head as soon as we think about starting something new. The fear of failure paralyzes us to the extent that we never move out from our comfort zones. As a result, we all go through life without achieving the big dreams we dreamed and the many goals we had once set for the future. Arthur Montgomery lived in the same fear for forty odd-years of his life. He was a chef in a lawyer’s suit. He spent every day in the courtrooms prosecuting criminals and fighting off crime on the streets. However, he could never fight against his inner demons. At home when he looked in the mirror he saw a failure. His haggard features and lifeless eyes mocked him. He could hear>>>

Water the Rose Despite Its Thorns

Water the Rose Despite Its Thorns We never hesitate to pick a rose despite the fact that the thorns can prick us; similarly, we should not be afraid to take risks and love people who may not seem to deserve it.

It was floating helplessly in the water. The old man knew that the scorpion will definitely drown if he does not do anything to save its life. Thinking quickly, the old man stretched out on a root>>>

Why Every Workplace Needs an Introvert

Why Every Workplace Needs an Introvert The world is an extrovert-dominated place. Even workplaces are designed to suit the extrovert nature. Read any job description and you will see that they require dynamic people, self-starters, go-getters, effective-communicators and amazing presenters for nearly all types of positions. Where does that leave a quiet individual who is a silent genius and usually the mastermind behind projects that extroverts in the top hierarchy take credit for? When the time comes for the company to bring down the axe, the introverts usually get it since they have spent more time working and less time networking and sucking up to the bosses.
